Where’s Tumut

Getting There

The closest major city is Canberra, a 2 hour drive away along the Barton and Hume Highway. From Sydney the drive is about 4.5 hours south west, also along the Hume Highway.

Accommodation

On site camping is always a cheap alternative otherwise caravan parks are an affordable option.

Not Fruit Picking – What to do?

Check out the Tumut musuem, walk the heritage trail or marvel at the african violet farm. The Falling leaf festival is also a great event to attend in April.

Extending Your Australian Working Holiday Visa

Many harvest jobs will meet the Second Australian Working Holiday Visa eligibility and count towards the 88 days of specified work. Some regional locations and jobs are ineligible which could lead to the Department of Immigration rejecting your application. So remember to confirm whether or not your fruit picking or harvest job will count towards the Second Australian WHV.

    Hi there,
    My friend and I are looking for work this summer on a peach (or any stone fruit) farm. We are from Sydney and Melbourne. Please let us know if there is anything available preferably closer to one of these cities. The month of January is best.
    Kind,
